Ever try ShareX?

"not used to other SS options" so no, I did not. Only other "screen capture" related stuff I've ever used is OBS :v.

Screenshots is not hard:
- Fraps, saves also immediately
- Screenshot feature with AMD tool ReLive (AMD has recording and screenshot for latest generation video cards) - no problem, saves immediately
- Bandicam screenshot (don't use recording, it has watermark above)
- Greenshot, need choose right window
- Faststone Image Viewer has own screenshot feature. You can use this program too to save PrintScreen shots easy.
- Nvidia users might have also own Nivida tool.

Enough solutions, don't worry.
But actually this is strange to see there is no "[ ] without watermark" option. This feels so forced change. Even without watermark, we can see it's from BDO.

My problem with this is they choose to invest valuable dev time in crap that degrades the product rather than fix the known issues. What idiot of a designer/Project manager/Product manager/Senior exec arse cooked up this little priority?

They had this in KR ages ago. Take a screenshot with Nvidia Shield or w/e crap AMD's have.

I use ShareX, even before they added the watermark. Since the native screenshot function makes things compressed and ugly.

It's actually a bit disgusting how many people have advocated for third party software or windows shortcuts as a solution. There's quite a few problems with this, I'll list them from least to greatest. The first being no matter the program there is some kind of set-up involved and some kind of risk, the exception being windows. Secondly on most third party programs there is some kind of lag time between the press and the capture or some kind of issue with resolution/number of screens/quality. Third many of these can't be bound to reasonable hotkeys or allow for shutter captures. HOWEVER the biggest reason people are flipping their lids about this horrid stamp is the fact WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO. There's no good reason to force someone onto a third party software or crop their images. It's another change that inconveniences a portion of the player base for no reason. Non-watermarked images will still appear on trash mobile adds, people will still cut them out, I'd wager that the vast majority of screenshots leaving this game will be trash screenshots with their brand on them and good screenshots someone took time and care to make without the watermark.

I challenge anybody to simply move the alignment to bottom-right, or bottom-left, set it to the smallest size, then set the opacity to 20%, and then post a sample screenshot where their screenshot has been absolutely ruined by the watermark.

C'mon people... really? Is it really that big of a deal? Or is it something to piss and moan about for the sake of having something to piss and moan about?

Good lord.

It's not like the watermark is plastered diagonally full size and full opacity across the entire image and disrupting the focus. Please...

Personal favorite, it has a ton of awesome features that are helpful outside of being just a screenshot app.

That aside, I don't believe this function will likely be going away in the near future (I could always be wrong of course). I know it has been a sore spot for some folks and will continue to deliver that to the developers.

Thanks for the candid reply.

I'm no business genius, but I figure it might be better for business to have your patrons feel like things are done for them, rather than to them. After this, I feel more like a dollar sign than a valued customer.

I used to take a billion screenshots, and posted most of my adventures on Twitter... but no more.

I would always tag them with #BlackDesertOnline so in case there was any doubt what game they were from.

But I guess Pearl Abyss thinks they are getting more mileage out of it this way?  

I won't be taking any more screens until there's an option to remove it.

I got a sad when I saw the forced watermark :(  Also I haven't played a ton lately due to visitors in town! But I'm back now... :)  I might try and find an alternate screenshot workflow!
